Mass shooting: Can adults be bullied?

This was the rather glib connection made by Los Angeles-based NPR radio host, Patt Morrison for her April 3 show about the Oakland, CA massacre of seven students by a 43-y.o. former student on April 2. It seems the shooter, who did not commit suicide but turned himself in, excused his decision on being “bullied” at school for his Korean accent – this in a school comprised of completely Korean students. This was a man looking for an excuse. Here’s the audio from the show.

Note: WBI believes bullied targets commit murder only if they are bullied for years and frustrated by institutional representatives who ignored their genuine pleas for relief from abusive conduct. It must be said that bullied targets seem more likely to commit suicide in silence and disappear from situations without anyone ever hearing those pleas.
